RAW Team Principal: Aston Martin ‘forgot’ at BoP

We spoke to Rowe Team Principal Hans-Peter Naundorf and he believes the Aston Martin Vantage is in a league of its own and, given the regular racing, BMW can’t beat it on its own. “I think they forgot about that in the BoP. Basically, we have to hope he’s gone.”

Brand Verification: Audi has the best cards

How are individual brands doing after four hours? Audi is in the best position at the moment. With my #15 Phoenix (K. van der Linde / D. Vanthoor / Vervisch / Frijns) on the P3 and #5 (V. Kolb / Stippler / Feller / K. van der Linde) on the P4 plus the set of cars – Audi #22 (Haase / N. Müller / Niederhauser / Rast) On the P4 it has four rings three irons hot in the fire.

Mercedes-AMG also has three cars in the top ten, but two GetSpeed ​​cars #3 (Christodoulou/Götz/Schiller) in P5 and #4 (Engel/Gounon/Juncadella) in P7 should raise the flag here. The HRT-Mercedes #6 driver in 10th place (Haupt/Piana/Dinst/Bastien) has very few drivers.

In the BMW camp, Rowe-BMW #98 (Catsburg / Edwards / S. van der Linde / Wittmann) is the only hope left for victory after Schubert #20 and Walkenhorst #101 haven’t been able to keep up yet.

After the accidents at Manthey and the Toksport WRT, Porsche is currently no longer in the top ten. The spearhead is the dynamic Porsche No. 28 (Englehart / Cairoli / Lidogar / Breining), which, however, hardly belongs to the group of favorites to win.

Time Penalty for RW BMW #99

The hosts see Nick Yelloly as the cause of the collision with the Toksport Porsche and impose a 1:32 minute time penalty on the #99 Rowe BMW. However, this is no longer relevant, because the car is still standing – but is now back in the pits.


7:35 pm

Once before the Vanthoor accident site

This is not the first time that Hohenren Scheken has been the scene of a serious Vantor accident. A few years ago, Dries rode in a similar fashion in an Audi at this point.

That’s the big news, because it was a big hit. And the Marshals, who were stationed directly behind the Manthey Porsche impact site, are doing fine, too.

Grillo crash!

Serious accident involving Manthey Porsche #1 at Hohenrain chicane, car flat. The accident was the result of an uphill fraternal battle.

7:12 PM

Rowe-BMW #99 returns to the tent

Rowe’s No. 99 is pushed back into the team’s tent in the ring. So we won’t be seeing this car on the racetrack anytime soon – that is, if ever.

This is how Nick Willowy describes the collision with a Toxport Porsche: “The three of them went a little too far in the Grand Prix circuit. I tried to get out of there, but then the Porsche just sped away and unfortunately we touched. I tried everything but unfortunately I couldn’t Avoid it. This is very frustrating, sorry for BMW and our entire team. Nobody wants to retire early. Broken front wishbone.”

Rowe BMW #99 in the box

Nick Wulley has to drive a Rowe-BMW into the unscheduled pits. It would have also been a miracle if nothing had broken in the collision with the Porsche. With that, another BMW bid farewell to the race for victory.


6:43 pm

Toksport-WRT and Rowe Crash!

Two competitors collide! Before NGK chicane, Nick Yelloly (Rowe-BMW #99) slams at Toksport-WRT-Porsche #27. He turns into a bed of gravel, the left rear wheel is broken. With that, the race is over. Yelloly could go on, but the meltdown is his fault!

The next hole in KTM

No luck on the fright GT3, True-KTM #116 (Kofler/Siljehaug/Hofer/Heinemann). For the second time, the car was punctured.

Another change in leadership

Maxime Martin passes the Porsche Manthe at Aston Martin and takes the lead. Frederic Makiwicki can’t keep up with the pace of the fastest pilots up front.

Behind them, Julian Andlauer at #27 Texport-WRT-Porsche past Luca Stolz in #12 HRT-Mercedes, who stopped the group behind him. This was important, because after the modification, Toksport-WRT leads the race and thus avoids wasting time.


6:26 pm

Investigation against #27 and #99

Due to contact in the pit lane, Tokosport-WRT-Porsche #27 and Rowe-BMW #99 are under investigation for “unsafe release”. That might not be insignificant given that the pit stops and adjusted downtime for these two cars are in the top three
